is a diverse and varied. white catholics vote differently than latino catholics who are the fastest-growing population among catholics. recent elections give a good education -- indication of how much the catholic vote is up for grabs. in 2008, barack obama won a 54% of the catholic vote, and that approximated a percentage of his overall national vote total. in 2004, president bush won similar sized majorities in both the national boats and the catholic vote. in 2000, al gore won a slim majority of the popular vote nationally end of the catholic vote as well. in 1996, clinton won a comfortable national majority and even a better turnout among catholics. it is hard to imagine the catholic vote as a monolithic force given these varied results in the modern era. the catholic vote today is deeply divided between the major political parties. it is important to understand that diversity of that group and the challenges that any candidate faces when making special appeal to catholics. just as background, the catholic vote once was nearly monolithic. catholics were once a key constituency o

throughout the state during this election, and when i speak to latino families, they want the same things we all want. i want to make sure they have a job and job security. they want to have access to affordable health care. they are interested in passing the dream act to allow kids that came here through no fault of their own and they're going to college or are serving in our military to have them pass a legal status. he voted against that act. what he is saying is that if you come back, we will support you. w-- we will deport you. i am in favor of comprehensive immigration reform and i have never heard my opponents say that before. i think it is discriminatory and unconstitutional. that is the difference between us. >> we can agree that we need immigration reform in this country. but perhaps the greenback is not the way to get that done. -- the dream act is not the way to get that done. republicans and democrats have to come together to solve this problem. talking about serving the military, i think you should have a pathway to citizenship. if you are working on your education, we should p
, and they tend to vote democratic. and among groups like latinos, are voting more democratic than the males. then there are younger women, and seniors. seniors are voting republicans, and obama has had a problem with seniors for some time. younger people if they vote, voting very democratic, but a big question about what the youth turnout is going to be. host: obama may not get a big backing again because only 48 percent of voters ages 18 to 24 say they will but. guest: if you look at 2010 come off-year elections, 6.6 young women who voted in 2008 did not show up in 2010. 11 million and married women who voted in 2008 did not vote in 2010. host: let me ask you their top issue. the polls that we had this morning in the papers show most important issues that impact women, and when they ask women that abortion topped the list. guest: i was flabbergasted, but it is a combination of women's issues and abortion and the economy. the new polls that are out showed that 41% of women, that their top issue is a woman's issue, abortion, birth control, and that is surprising. that is record high. there a

to romney's answer in immigration in the second debate, he is trying to be more palatable to latino voters to see an anti illegal immigrant stance as being more cautious out to hispanic people. it was mostly -- aimed precisely at asians. there are less concerned about illegals. there are fewer illegal asians and the idea of stapling a green card to a diploma hits the spot with many asian americans. >> if i could add what michael said about the minority of boat looking ahead, hispanics as a group have grown much faster than any of us expected looking at the census data. they still have what the great demographer at brookings calls a translation problem. the population is so young, many are not registered citizens. we expect 21 to turnout on election day. for whites that number will being 51 or 52 overall. that is an important thing to remember. this population is coming very fast and something that republicans will have to deal with that they have a translation problem. the african-american population is a slow growing population. that will affect elections going forward. henry? >> the non-
not want anyone mistreated. i think our hispanic and latino friends are truly wonderful people. we have got to come up with solutions. i think mitt romney will do that. and i'm in a position to help him on the judiciary committee and the finance committee. >> i wish you would have helped president obama. this is the essence of the problem. he is only going to help president romney. this is what the problem is back there. finance committee. with gov. ravi if he is president, were president obama. -- governor romneywe have becom. i will work if he is president, or president obama. in ibm, if you are in a position and you do not fix something, you are terminated. you are done. go to the ceo of the utah farm bureau. >> good to be here. our national debt is clearly burden on our country and the future financial well-being. what do you propose to do to reduce government spending, cut the debt, and secure our national security for the future? >> guyer appreciate the farm bureau. an randy was actually one of those -- my grandfather mentored from our farm in utah. and we are facing problems with the
african americans and latinos and asian americans who are representing districts that are themselves not necessarily of a majority of their race. the american people are beginning to vote across racial lines, and i hope it will happen more and more. more and more women are being elected. look at all these women senate candidates we have here. and you know, according to my mother and my wife and my daughter, this world would be a lot better place if women were running it most of the time. i do think there are special experiences and judgments and backgrounds and understandings that women bring to this process, by the way. this lady said here, how have you been affected by the economy. i mean, women know what's it like to be paid an unequal amount for equal work. they know what it's like not to have flexible working hours. they know what it's like not to have family leave or childcare. so i think it would be a good thing for america if it happened. and i think it will happen in my lifetime. >> okay. i'm sorry. we have just a little bit of time left. let's try to get responses from each
and romney need to answer. they need to let us know if they are looking out for latinos and the need to let us know what exactly they are doing about foreign policy. guest: first dimension that the president did not do anything on immigration. there's a whole host of issues that the president did not do anything on purity did not focus on the economy, immigration. deficit. focused on his health care law. when you want to make the case for change, for firing somebody, you have to demonstrate that they have failed, and the fact is indisputable that the president failed on all of those fronts. when you look at hiring someone, you look at a resonate, you look at their history. history is a really good predictor of how someone will preform in the future. that is white pepper resonates in interviews when we hire folks. with our debt. we know this about his history. president obama never had that success. host: we are talking with lenny curry, join in us from jacksonville, fla.. we have this special one forour next call comes from florida. caller: i wanted to get some information about, i lived in
